If your battery charging light comes on while you're driving, you should pull over as soon as it's safe. This light comes on when your alternator is not making electricity and the car is running off of battery power alone.

2005 grand am no start no dash lights only power locks when turning key. New battery and ignition switch. What can it be?


No dash lights? no warning lights? Then ignition is not being turned to ON. Check all your fuses. Recheck your replacement work. Battery cables clean and tight? Headlights work? If lights are bright, battery is good and cables are good, so key to ON should light up warning lights on dash. If not something up still with your ignition switch.

My 2005 kai will not start and all the lights are out on dash


It sounds like you just have a defective battery, new sealed batteries do this exact thing. I have had this happen on my personnel cars and trucks about 5 times over the years. Also make sure the battery cable are clean and free of corrosion.

Dash lights won't work and alternator doesn't appear to be charging battery. All visible fuses are good


The alternator needs power from the battery to energise the rotor, so without the dash lights the alternator is not charging. Check for a fuse link near the battery. Get the dash lights on and the charging fault will clear. Sorry I can't be more specific as to the dash problem.

Battery light


On this issue i suggest you to get the battery and its connections checked.
Either battery is got weak or the problem is related to loose battery connections.Some times battery connectors gets dirty and cause no connection issue.So disconnect battery terminals,clean them and reconnect and check ,if that is helping.
Also if the battery is got very old,then try with new battery.

I un-hooked my battery replaced my starter and now my truck wont start.


are you getting a good connection?? Do you have dash lights???? If you have dash lights the problem is probably with the starter. If no dash lights you probably have a bad connection to the starter. You might even try to jump the vehicle if you cannot get dash lights. maybe a dead battery. If you have dash lights, check your starter and make sure you put the wires back in the same spot as the old starter, and make sure they are tight. Check your ground terminal on your battery as well

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start


Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

Car wont turn over to start but light on dash light up. not the battery all wires from starter motor ok.


You say it is not the battery, so I will assume that it is either new or you had it load tested. When you say the light on the dash light up do you mean all the dash lights, radio, and head light works? If there is no cranking it is most likely the starter is bad.
